Is Your Building Contaminated?
Reuse or demolition of industrial buildings that have been shutdown, idled or abandoned may pose a unique set of potential health issues to construction workers and future occupants. These issues must be considered as the owner or potential buyer determines the fate or reuse opportunity of a building along with the overall planning process.
4 Steps To Developing an Emergency Response Plan
In recent years, facilities managers of offices, retail establishments, schools/universities, healthcare and other non-manufacturing facilities have become aware of additional unwanted or unplanned events. Unfortunately, specific plans to respond to these events often are never developed, and as a result, facilities managers find themselves unprepared to respond to the needs of management. Here are 4 steps to developing an effective Emergency Response Plan:
- Conduct a standard GAP analysis to identify predictable risks and events (i.e. Asbestos and lead release, bodily fluids incident, etc.)
- Develop the various scenarios and conditions that can lead to predictable risk events based on the GAP analysis
- Develop a list of site- and incident-specific responses for each predictable risk event
- Train personnel in each of the ERPs to ensure the plans are effective

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing “safe and healthful working conditions” for their workers.
Today, CIHs are employed in countries worldwide and have proven to be instrumental in helping private employers, institutions and government agencies improve work environments for health and safety.
